Maps showing settlement probability locations for different sources. a) Offshore site at Rottnest Island (R_PP) sheltered on the west and north with very high loss of fruit, b) Exposed site at Carnac Island (CI) over a deeper meadow (~10 m), allowing greater flows to carry fruit away with high probabilities of dehiscence over larger areas. c) Coastal site within Safety Bay (SB), where local circulation transported the fruit rapidly offshore, thus facilitating LDD. d) For this coastal sheltered site (MB) in the Cockburn embayment wind surface currents also allowed for broad dispersal with limited interruptions to the northward flow.
